Another beautiful bed-jacket, in aqua. I have a substantial collection, but always bring home more when I find them. Why? Though the basic style is the same, they’re almost always different in the details. Pretty and practical, fun to wear. Mid-century women certainly thought so.
Although I haven’t parted with any yet, can you imagine what wonderful gifts they would make?! For someone who loves vintage, or just craves lovely things and the sense of luxury you get from lounging in bed with coffee, dressed to the nines? Or, is going into the hospital or must spend time convalescing at home?
And now, on to the gown . . . . . .. Here, Stella displays it’s charms. Look at that fit!!! It’s probably older than the bed jacket. And I love, love, love the bodice treatment and the way that the straps have been attached. Take a close look.
No buttons or hardware, just a silky sweep of creamy true vintage nylon (the best nylon is 50 – 70 years old). You can’t imagine wearing something that feels so good until you’ve done it. On top of how it feels, is how gorgeously sexy and feminine it looks.
So, I’m ready for dreamland, parties and day-dressing lately, with lots of accessories, too . . . . . . . . . . .
